Dana Holgorsen: Thanks, but no thanks


(via @worstfan)

A lot has been made of Dana Holgorsen's departure for the coach in waiting position at West Virgina, but after last night's Alamo Bowl game I could not be more thankful.

Holgorsen's true colors came out at the end of the season when he only gave one of the best running backs ever to play at Oklahoma State 13 carries against Oklahoma and 10 carries against Arizona.  

When you have talent  like Kendall Hunter, you give him carries. But Dana Holgorsen clearly doesn't believe that.

13 carries in a monumental game against Oklahoma. 10 carries in his final game as a Cowboy.

Can you imagine what another year of these shenanigans would have done to our program?  What a guy like Herschel Sims would think after getting a marginal work load? 

"Tailback U" may have gone the way of the Dodo.

But thankfully, we don't have to worry about that. Dana Holgorsen is going to West Virginia and will install his pass happy offense there. Hopefully with his departure, Tailback U can get back to what they do best. Running the football.
